Mission Statement

We, the congregation of Summerhill Parish Church, see ourselves as the family of God in this place and part of the worldwide Church of Jesus Christ joined together through faith and prayer and by the Holy Spirit at work in our midst.

            We aim to worship God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit in ways that are honouring to him in our daily life at home, school, work and in the community as well as in church.

            Though we are weak and far from perfect we believe that God equips us to serve him and the community in which we live and we look to him to enable us to shine for him.

            We are open to work alongside and learn from all those who love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity and truth.

            We commit ourselves to pray for and set a joyful example of Christian faith to all in our parish and to remember the needs of the wider world.

            We give thanks for more than 40 years of Christian worship and service in this place and we look to God for the grace to rise to the challenges that lie ahead.
